For the second straight year, Eagle’s Landing senior running back Corey Holloway rushed for more than 1,000 yards but this season’s accomplishments were a little more significant since the Golden Eagles set a school record for wins.

“We had a great season,” Holloway said. “We overcame a lot of things. We really put a name out there for Eagle’s Landing. Everybody on our team contributed especially the seniors. The mindset and attitude towards winning was much greater than last year.”

Holloway finished with 1,093 rushing yards, a 7.1 yards per carry average and a team-leading 10 touchdowns as the team bounced back from consecutive 1-9 seasons with an 8-3 mark.

“First, I have to give it up to God for my performance,” Holloway said. “Then to my linemen and the other people who blocked for me because without them I wouldn’t have been able to do what I did.”

After a junior season of racking up 1,370 rushing yards, Holloway sacrificed even more carries but for the greater good when old running mate Sedrick Palmer joined him and Bradley Dewberry in the backfield.

“They had a great season,” Holloway said. “They contributed to the offense just like I did. We broke a lot of records. A lot of credit goes to our linemen.”

Holloway will officially visit Georgia State this Saturday and has an interest in Western Kentucky.
